When you go to click “save” in flash 8 and click “save and compact” by mistake. Especially if it deletes something from your library you were not ready to delete.
Never heard about Ctrl+S ? May be you are using your left hand for mouse and so not possible to use generic shortcuts! Save and Compact will reopen the file and you lose all the ‘undo’s

Does save and compact also delete unused symbols in u’r library – I use it sometime because it makes the FLA file size smaller – but still not sure exactly what it is doing :P

No, it will not touch the unused symbols in the library.

You may notice that even after deleting some library items, Flash file will not get the size reduced in normal save. The save and compact will do that. Sometimes, I have seen reduction from 20mb into 1mb.
